Most, whether they grew up in church or not, have not been taught the practical, "how to's" of living out the Christian faith. As a result, they do not feel as connected as they would like with God. SL 1.0 teaches the time-tested, practical, “how to” practices for engaging God. It specifically covers: 1. Understanding and experiencing the gospel. The Gospel, that is the Good News of what God has done for you, is the core of a vibrant faith. For the many who have not experienced how it radically transforms and establishes God as the center of their life, it is just a word. In 1.0, participants have the Gospel unpacked for them as well as walked into experiencing it. 2. Teaching "how to" do specific spiritual practices. 1.0 teaches the "how-to's" of prayer, reading scripture, hearing from God, praying with others, and other time-tested spiritual practices necessary in connecting with God. This is the starting place of all and the core course Embark was built upon.
